I have e-mailed Councillor Stout and asked him two specific questions:

1. Is he aware that a prominent local businessman made an offer to buy the Shay Stadium from CMBC over a year ago at a formal meeting attended by a senior Council executive which was not a derisory offer?

2. Is he aware that the general public and businesses are deterred from hiring the East Stand facilties due to the extortionate refreshment costs?

I await his reply and will keep you posted.

In fairness, Micky Mouse could have made an offer to buy the stadium. The question is how much was the offer, on what terms, etc. I think the Shay falling into private ownership could potentially lead to a very dangerous future for both clubs and it is not something I would like to see happen.

As for your second question, the Council dropped a bollock when they employed the services of a middle man to run the East Stand facility and I hope they look to take it back inside when the EMC contract renewal is due.
Loving the hypocrisy of some.

Gav, I think you mis-understood point No.1 that PB was making. "Was councillor Stout aware", he wasn't questioning how much the offer or terms.
